Late cancellation: 9 - 16th August now available Sleeps 8. Very spacious and beautifully furnished, on two floors joined by a spiral staircase. A relaxing getaway away from the tourist hordes, but also within easy reach of the treasures of Florence, Siena and Pisa. Seaside is forty minutes' drive. Ideal for culture vultures, walking or for hardy bikers who like challenging hills! Standing on a small hillock immediately off the road, Tuscan Skies has magnificent views all round. To one side, Volterra 'city of magic and mystery' stands on top of one side of the valley, while ancient Montecatini Val di Cecina sits on the other. Tuscan Skies was built as two separate apartments which we have joined as one property. As a result, there is ample, airy space for our guests to relax and enjoy themselves. Guests always comment on the high quality of furnishings as well as its wonderful location. On the upper floor are three bedrooms. The master bedroom has an en-suite shower room; the Courtyard Room and Terrace Room (with top quality sofabed) share a large shower room. The Terrace Room has access to a small terrace - ideal for sitting in the evening. This room can double up as a relaxing lounge. There is a substantial, fully-equipped kitchen/living room with magnificent views to Volterra.. The lower floor has a double room with four-poster bed. This floor has its own comfortable living area with fully-appointed kitchen and separate large shower room. There is a comfortable double bed settee downstairs so that the living area can be used as an additional bedroom. The downstairs area has seating for eight. The private garden with barbecue overlooks Val di Cecina and Montecatini. All beds are queen size. External access to the upper floor is via the courtyard and to the lower floor via the garden entrance. “This is another Tuscany, and one that few people take the trouble to get to know, but which is richly rewarding” (Italia Magazine, December 2009) Volterra was the setting for 'New Moon' from Stephanie Meyer's Twilight Saga. Please note: some guests have expressed concerns about possible earthquakes. They do not affect this area, and the property is in any case constructed with earthquake-proof bricks.More

About the neighbourhood
Volterra has Etruscan, Roman and mediaeval remains, including an impressive Roman theatre, plus several museums. The main traditional industry is alabaster, and there are plenty of shops/workshops where you can see alabaster products being made. There are festivals virtually every week in one or other of the local towns. Volterra's best festival is Volterra AD1398. It takes place over two weekends in August. The centre of the town is sealed off and given over to middle ages stalls, children's games and sports such as tug-o'-war and crossbow contests. At other times there are flag-throwing contests, food markets and street theatre. For 'New Moon' fans, there are guided tours. The tourist information office has free maps of locations from the book. Excellent restaurants are to be fo...
How to get there
Easy reach of Pisa, Florence and Siena. Rome three hours drive. Flights to Pisa and Rome via major carriers and Ryanair, Jet2, Easyjet from UK. Meridiana and Alitalia fly to Florence. PLEASE NOTE: Arrivals should be before 9 p.m.. Otherwise, a late arrival fee will be charged. Guests will meet up with our property manager in nearby Orciatico. She will then accompany you to 'Tuscan Skies'.
